In this edition of the "Ask Gunner" column, we get West Coast Heeler Pack to show us how she gets her Gunner kennel squeaky clean after a long season.
Training Tips

Q:

Dear Gunner, the season has ended and I need to give my Gunner kennel a good cleaning. My Performance Pad might need to some work too. What’s the best way to go about that?

Thanks,
Dirty Dog Owner

A:

Good thinking Dirty Dog Owner. If the crate needs a light cleaning – aka there isn’t a lot of hair, dirt or sand in the kennel’s bottom – just pull the crate’s removable drain plug out of the back and hose down the interior. Don’t worry it can take it. When you’re done, tip the kennel and let the water run out the back if there’s any excess. Done.

But if you want to really give your kennel (or Performance Pad) a good scrub, below is a how-to video that gets the job done. Here’s what you’ll need to truly give your kennel that deep clean:
• Bucket
• Soap
• Mop
• Hose

It’s like an insurance plan….

This is by far the best kennel made. I use mine daily and they take lots of abuse. They never even seem to wear at all. Hose them off with soap and water and they look brand new. I encourage all of my puppy buyers to get them as well. It’s like an insurance plan for your best friend!

Wow, Just Wow

Wow, this kennel is the Yeti of dog kennels! everything about this kennel is first rate. Yes, there are cheaper, but none can compare to a Gunner kennel.

Amazing travel kennel

This thing is built like a tank. I have no doubt this will protect our little guy if we are ever involved in an accident. We recently completed an 800 mile road trip with him in the crate. It was well worth the money. This was the first time he was calm in the car and not whining. He slept easily during the drive. We felt calm know he was secure and comfortable. Cannot recommend this crate enough!!

Unlike any other crate I have seen

I purchased two Gunner kennels, a medium and a small, for my pups. Immediately, you understand this is a different level of product compared to what you’ve used before. The construction is fantastic and legitimately heavy duty. I feel so much better knowing I’ve done everything I can to keep my dogs safe in case of a worst case scenario.

Best purchase for my best friends

I’ve been buying cheap kennels for the four years I’ve owned my dogs, none of them seemed to hold up. I’ve wanted a Gunner for a year now, and the more I read stories of how they have saved dogs lives, it made me think of how losing my best friends would damn near **** me. So I made the purchase and will never look back. It is one solid kennel and I will not let the kennel hold me back from traveling farther to hunt anymore. It’s well worth the investment. I’m a firm believer in you get what you pay for, and this will not let anyone down.
